Meeting Planning in Dallas, TX

Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas

The Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas (KBHCCD) offers over one million square feet of exhibit space. It is one of the largest in the country, but offers flexible spaces that make it just as suited for large tradeshows and international conventions as for intimate business meetings and corporate functions. Events can take advantage of 726,726 square feet of contiguous exhibit space, including a 203,000-square-foot, column-free exhibit hall – the largest in the United States. Additional venue options include the 9,816-seat arena, 1,750-seat theater, two ballrooms, and 96 meeting rooms.

Blending form and function, KBHCCD is not just a practical choice for major events, but also a beautiful one. Welcoming guests to the center is Pioneer Plaza, where one of the largest bronze sculptures in the world re-creates a Texas cattle drive with 40 longhorns and three cowboys. Inside, terrazzo flooring and art depicting the history of Dallas and its residents create an inviting setting for attendees.

For events large and small, the convention center provides state-of-the-art technology that keeps visitors connected. In fact, it was the first wireless convention center in the world, and remains one of the fastest with its Cisco-Certified system. Other amenities include a fiber-optic transmission system for audio and video broadcasts throughout the center, catering by award-winning chefs of Centerplate, three permanent first aid rooms, and two gift shops, in addition to souvenirs, small parcel shipping, copying, and faxing.

In late 2011, the city of Dallas debuted the center's headquarters hotel. Connected to the Dallas Convention Center by sky bridge, the Omni Dallas Hotel has 1,001 guest rooms and incorporates more than 110,000 square feet of meeting and event space. Included among its 40 meeting rooms are the Dallas and Trinity ballrooms, boasting 32,000 and 15,000 square feet, respectively. The hotel also hosts an impressive lineup of dining options, and recently added four more restaurants just outside of the hotel and in walking distance of KBHCCD. Add in access to DART, with a station just outside the convention center, and meetings at KBHCCD are as easy as they come.
